Republican candidates are giving us many reasons for pride this year, and Democrats are offering a few chuckles. Cheers for Ed Gillespie, Mike McFadden, Bobby Jindal, and Chris Christie. Mona and Jay note with wry amusement the inability of Democratic senatorial candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes (she does have a musical name, Jay observes) to say whether she voted for Barack Obama. They laugh at her – and him.
Grimes is one of the Democratic candidates who thought the “War on Women” farce could be reprised in 2014, but that is looking increasingly unlikely. Grimes has been hit with one of those secret tapings that make Jay and Mona a little queasy, but which reveal the truth nonetheless.
The hosts wonder why Obama hates the press. What more could they have done for him? Erect a golden calf?
Finally, after the usual meandering conversation, they settle on something to disagree on – women and the hook up culture. Are they victims? If so, of whom? The podcast closes with thoughts about Beatrix Potter and genius. Speaking of genius, Anna Netrebko sings us out with a little Verdi.
